      Oathbringer Spoiler Policy   11/13/2017

      Oathbringer is out! Let's make our policy on spoilers clear! 1. You must preface topics with Oathbringer spoilers with the prefix [OB] in the front 2. You are only allowed to post spoilers and spoiler topics in the Oathbringer Spoiler Board, Cosmere Theories, and some select work-related forums. 3. For posts in the Oathbringer Spoiler Board you do not need to use spoiler tags inside a topic marked [OB]. For Cosmere Theories, you also do not need to put spoiler tags inside your topic if the topic has [OB] in the title. However, for Cosmere Theories, if you are adding Oathbringer stuff to an old theory without the [OB] tag, those must go in spoiler tags and you must make it obvious outside the spoiler tag that the spoiler is regarding Oathbringer content. 4. For select things that do require talking about OB spoilers, in Events, Coppermind, and Arcanum forums, those are allowed but keep OB spoilers in spoiler tags 5. Avoid and minimize spoilers in topic titles--even though those two boards will not appear in the Recent Topics ticker, topic titles still appear in Recent Activity and the forum home.  6. You aren't allowed to post Oathbringer spoilers in places other than listed, even with spoiler tags.  It will be nine months and then the Oathbringer board will be re-merged with the Stormlight board and you will not need to tag these spoilers. If you'd like to move something in the Stormlight Archive board to the Oathbringer board, to update it with new Oathbringer information, Report the post and we will happily move it to the Oathbringer spoiler board. Part-by-part Reactions Though the Oathbringer Spoiler Board will be very spoilery, very fast (maybe don't come there until you've read the book, as people do have copies that bookstores sold early), you'll have these five topics for reactions if you want to nerd out: Part 1 Reactions
      Part 2 Reactions
      Part 3 Reactions
      Part 4 Reactions
      Full Book Reactions For parts 1-4, they will not include the interludes immediately following it. On Discord All Oathbringer spoilers on Discord will be exclusively in the #oathbringer_spoilers channel for the nine month spoiler period and nowhere else.

  1. So I remember reading a WoB that confirmed what each of Shallan's oaths/truths were but I can't find it on Theoryland or Arcanum... I believe it was formatted something like: 1: Life Before Death, Strength Before Weakness, Journey Before Destination. 2: I'm terrified. 3: I killed my father. 4: I killed my mother.
  2. So has no one nominated @Ookla the Maccabee [Delightful]? Seems like an oversight.
  3. Yeah... definitely borrowing that.
  4. Hahahaha lovely! (or perhaps I should say "Delightful..." buh dum chhh..) I had actually meant to tag you in that but I couldn't quickly figure out which Ookla you were and I got lazy... Edit: This one is solid too...
  5. @Joe ST, I think I can now pledge my undying loyalty to you. This was incredible.
  6. I'd say that NB is the Aluninum we had seen in addition to Shallan's necklace pre-OB. As for NB's Sheath:
  7. @Calyx: @Radiant Returned, Not sure if your theory is right but I like it a lot. I tend to agree with you that Hoid may indeed know what his is talking about. However, for the sake of debate I think it should be considered that the "We" could refer to Rayse having help in taking down Honor. If this were the case I would guess that Bavadin would be the most likely candidate. @Ookla, the Incalculable, you get an upvote for basically preemptively reading my mind
  8. There is a WoB about this: So, the mechanic of Moash's knife is something similar to Hemalurgy but not quite the same. I would guess that it did not actually give Moash any boon. The Heraldic reincarnation is a similar function to the Returned on Nalthis. The fundemental principles of the Cosmere recur in different magic systems (for example; Yolish lightweaving compared to Rosharan Lightweaving or healing via Bloodmaking or Regrowth). I suspect that what makes a Herald a Herald is that they have something very similar to a Divine Breath (though derived of Honor rather than Endowment) in their Spirit Web that reincarnates them and the dagger took that away from Jezrien and trapped it in the Gemstone in the hilt. I would guess that the process could be considered Hemalurgy as it likely ripped the ability straight out of Jezrien's Spirit Web. @Calyx, I would guess the ability to sense the other Heralds is a product of the Oathpact. The Heralds are heavily connected to each other. It is what allows them to share their pain during torture on Braize. Ash can feel it because suddenly Jezrien was no longer connected.
  9. Happy Hanukkah!
  10. Disregard what I said, reading comprehension is key.
  11. Some words of wisdom form Lunker for your Monday...
  12. I somewhat doubt this, as I believe that the thing with the map was actually a result of Shallan's Lightweaving interacting with Dalinar's Spiritual Adhesion. It might be possible for Dalinar and Renarin to manifest the visions somehow though.
  13. This is what I had thought was the significance of the interlude.
  14. It is during the battle of Thaylen City just before Renarin's encounter with Jasnah I believe.
